In the late '60s the Rascals (a.k.a. the Young Rascals) gave us songs like "Good Lovin'," "People Got To Be Free," "Groovin'" and "A Beautiful Morning," and they'll be reuniting with their original lineup every day this Thursday through Saturday to play them for you at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester. The show will be part theatrical and it's called Once Upon a Dream. It'll tell the band's story via clips of early footage, narration and acting, and it's produced and directed by Steven Van Zandt of the E Street Band. But don't worry, it's still a real live Rascals show too, and the Thursday performance will be the first public appearance by the band in 40 years (they played a private benefit in 2010 and were joined onstage by Van Zandt and Bruce Springsteen). If you're all booked up this weekend, they'll also be playing next Thursday through Saturday.
The Capitol Theatre, 149 Westchester Ave., Port Chester, NY. Thu.-Sat., 8 p.m. $65-$135. (914) 937-4126. thecapitoltheatre.com.
